Effect of Ocular Hygiene on Scleral Lens Wear

2018-06-07 23:55:10 | BioPortfolio


This is a study to evaluate the performance of Lid Scrubs when added to the daily regimen of scleral lens wear. Lid Scrubs contain surfactants and chemically developed Ringer's solution with microbial attributes. Lid Scrubs are typically used in the treatment of blepharitis. This study is geared towards showing added benefits to scleral lens patients when adding Lid Scrubs to their daily regimens. This study will also show if Lid Scrubs are capable of antimicrobial properties on scleral lens accessories.
